Tiny Nonsense

Constellate, how can I change my gauge?

We're having a little KAL for Constellate, and I promised I'd talk about a few ways you can modify the pattern as part of the festivities.  One of the easiest (and I think most fun) ways you could modify this pattern is to tweak your gauge. Now, the pattern is already written in three gauges (5.5, 6, or 6.5 stitches per inch, which should work for most dk, sport, or fingering weight yarns).  There's a little chart in the pattern that looks something like this.  It shows you what size head the hat fits at various gauges and cast ons.

Constellate KAL

So, enough folks have asked that I think we should do a little knitalong for Constellate!  I've got us a thread set up on ravelry right over here.  If this has found its way onto your needles, I'd be delighted if you'd come show it off! Over the next week or two I'll show off some swatches of this stitch in other yarn, talk a bit about how you could change up the gauge to make a really bulky hat, and maybe even see if we can't come up with a few examples of how you could turn this into [...]

Argent, Fourth Curls KAL

We're doing knitalongs for the patterns in Curls, and it's time for the fourth pattern in the book, Argent. I am a firm believer in low-key knitalongs, so there isn't really too much structure.  All the details for this one are over the KAL thread in my ravelry group.  But the gist is knit this pattern over the next two months, show it off and talk about it in that thread, and some time after the KAL ends I’ll send someone who posted a picture of a finished project something fun in the mail.  Pretty simple really!  We’ve already got [...]

Cerise, Second Curls KAL

We're doing knitalongs for the patterns in Curls, and it's time for the second pattern in the book, Cerise. Now, I’m also a big fan of relaxed knitalongs.  I am not a fan of stress or hard deadlines, so we’re going to make this easy.  All the details for this one are over the KAL thread in my ravelry group.  But the gist is knit this pattern over the next two months, show it off and talk about it in that thread, and some time after the KAL ends I’ll send someone who posted a picture of a finished project [...]

Caesious, First Curls KAL

So, I think we should do a knitalong for the patterns in Curls, don't you?  And I'm a fan of doing things in order, so we'll start with the first pattern in the book, Caesious. Now, I'm also a big fan of relaxed knitalongs.  I am not a fan of stress or hard deadlines, so we're going to make this easy.  All the details for this one are over the KAL thread in my ravelry group.  But the gist is knit this pattern over the next two months, show it off and talk about it in that thread, and some time [...]

KCC3 Knit along, Planorbis corneus projects

The knit along for the projects based on the Fucus asparagoides print is starting over on ravelry. That's this super curly shawl, and these lovely socks. I am a huge believer in low-stress knit alongs, so this one is pretty laid back.  Come, knit with us, chat, post pictures…I promise we’re friendly!  Everyone is welcome, you can use whatever yarn you'd like.  At the end of the knit along, I’ll find someone who has posted a picture of a finished project in the thread and send them happy mail.  That’s pretty much all there is to it.  If these are [...]

KCC3 Knit along, Fucus asparagoides projects

The knit along for the projects based on the Fucus asparagoides print is starting over on ravelry.  That's this lovely curved shawl (I just love that shape far more than is reasonable, it's so easy to wear) and these super lacy socks.I am a huge believer in low-stress knit alongs, so this one is pretty laid back.  Come, knit with us, chat, post pictures...I promise we're friendly!  At the end of September, I'll find someone who has posted a picture of a finished project in the thread and send them happy mail.  That's pretty much all there is to it.  [...]

Delias eucharis Knit Along

I’ll be having knit alongs for each of the pattern pairs in The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet, Volume II. This month we're starting the two patterns inspired by the Delias eucharis print. To start, we've got some delicious cabled socks (I loved them so much they had to go on the cover). And if you're not feeling the sock vibe, this hat is equally enchanting. These are both made with yarns from the always charming Plucky Knitter, and yes I do happen to have a beautiful skein of her yarn to give away to a lucky winner at the end of [...]

Polyommatus corydon Knit Along

I’ll be having knit alongs for each of the pattern pairs in The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet, Volume II.  This month we're starting the two patterns inspired by the Polyommatus corydon print (as always, you can click on the print to see it bigger, these prints really are marvelous). So of course we have socks...ruffly frilly amazing socks. And just to counter out all that girlishness, a slightly more subdued hat. If you’d like to join in, swing on by the ravelry thread and get knitting.  This is pretty laid back for a knit along (too many rules make my head [...]
